The evidence is clear. For many women, one of the most potentially powerful influences on their wellbeing is how men in their lives – be they loved ones or strangers – behave towards them. The evidence is also clear that what we learn about relationships, and how to conduct them, starts when we are young.
In this way, Some Boys – the latest book from Melbourne author, comedian and Jean Hailes ambassador Nelly Thomas – is well placed to make a most profound and positive impact on our next generation of brothers, friends, dads and husbands – and in turn, the girls and women in their lives.
This delightful book of simple and funny rhymes offers a great opportunity to help young boys aged 0-7 years to grow into respectful, empathetic and confident men. Like its companion book, Some Girls*, released earlier this year, Some Boys is all about teaching the children in our lives – and the adults around them – that gender stereotypes do not have to dictate how a person looks and behaves, and need not be a basis for potentially hurtful judgement.
With beautiful and funny illustrations from Sarah Dunk, Some Boys inspires little boys to like whatever they want, to look however they want, that "all boys can be whatever they want", and that being different is OK. Some Boys celebrates that everyone is special in their own way. Because we are.

If you want to instil confidence in the little girl in your life to be comfortable in her own skin, then look no further than Some Girls, the debut book by Melbourne comedian – and Jean Hailes ambassador – Nelly Thomas.
In Some Girls*, Thomas challenges the gender stereotype that girls should look and behave a certain way, and instead celebrates the fact that every little girl is different and special in her own way. It's a powerful message – for both children and adults – but delivered lovingly and lightly through funny rhymes and beautiful illustrations.
Whether your little girl is tender or tough, plays with dolls or dirt, or likes her hair short or long, this book will let her know that all girls can be whatever they want.
